That evening, I offered, yet again, to watch Bee more often. I pointed out that she and Eric *need* the time together. They really do... I don't think they're in any danger of splitting up, by any means, but they could stand to be a lot happier together right now, as a couple. This time she said yes, which I was relieved to hear. So, now I'll be babysitting once every two weeks.
I also, lest you think I'm just incapable of articulating my needs, asked her if she thought we could manage a date a month in future. She asked that we start by aiming for a minimum of a date every two months and ramp up from there once that feels feasible. I agreed. So, sometime in September I am going to damn well take her out to a fancy restaurant.
Dang! I had a lot to say, yo.
